A unified and common intermediate strategy for syntheses of juglomycins and their derivatives is reported. The use of a 1,4-dimethoxynaphthalene derivative as a key intermediate enabled easy access to various juglomycin derivatives. In this study, juglomycins A-D, juglomycin C amide, khatmiamycin and its 4-epimer, and the structure proposed for juglomycin Z were synthesized from this intermediate. The absolute configuration of natural khatmiamycin has been established to be 3R,4R through our synthesis. Unfortunately, the spectroscopic data for synthetic juglomycin Z were not consistent with the data reported for the natural one, strongly suggesting a structural misassignment.
